Diner Reviews
  • "We've come for the monthly Mariachi music, a favorite of my husband, but I didn't have high expectations for the food; the other reviews were so mixed. After two visits, this is my take on the food: If you come for a platter of enchiladas, don't expect anything special. But if you try dishes that are more interesting, it's like the food is coming from another kitchen! Fresh fish, great vegetables, light broth or sauces. My daughter said her steak fajitas were the best ever! In our neck of the woods (Danville) these dishes would cost $21-29. But here they're $15! And there's plenty for two people, without factoring in the rice/beans. We gave up ordering pricey dishes at Mexican restaurants because they don't measure up."

  • "Otaez is a good neighborhood restaurant in Alameda. My husband and I eat here often. Their carnitas is amazing. They have good vegetarian options. Great, fresh tortillas. I met friends here on Cinco de Mayo and the place was packed. Sangria is the best. Beer selection is good as well."

  • "Some of the food was tasty and some was inedible. The wait staff we're not well organized, the food was late and very inconsistent. On the positive side, the Margaritas were good but slow in coming."
